Things have turned around for Giannis Antetokounmpo lately

Giannis AntetokounmpoSeven games ago, thanks in large part to the Bucks disappointing season to-date.  Head Coach Jason Kidd made a move he’d been considering since the 2014 NBA Summer League.  He decided to make the 6-11 Giannis Antetokounmpo his point guard.

Prior to the move, Antetokounmpo had zero career triple-doubles.

Seven games later, he has 3.

Antetokounmpo notched his third triple-double of the season last night in an 8-point loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

His stats last night: 26 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks with a 5-1 assist/turnover ratio.

Over his last 7 games: 20.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 2.1 steals and 2.2 blocks a night.

We’re talking about a 6-11 21-year-old who’s still figuring things out.

Kudos to Jason Kidd for making a bold move and defying convention thinking.  It’s certainly paying off for him.

“The Greek Freak” is earning his nickname.
